Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has made it known today he will vote for the $875 billion health care plan currently sitting inside the House of Representatives. The far left Progressive voted against the health care reform bill back in November because it did not include a single-payer system.
Kucinich has displayed great common sense on fiscal issues. However, when the President makes a visit to your district, privately meets with you four times, and asks for your vote, you had better vote in his favor, or else!
Wait a sec, that’s not what the President should be doing. That’s what lobbyists are for!
“The president’s visit to my district … underscored the urgency of this vote,” Kucinich said. “I have doubts about the bill … [but] I’ve decided to cast a vote in favor of the legislation.”
Traitor. I realize Kucinich is a far lefty guy. I can respect that, to an extent. His fiscal policy record is astounding for any politician in Washington DC. But what the hell happened? This bill will not lower premiums, as mentioned by Dick Durbin (D-IL) .
Well then…so much for cutting costs.
